That car looks really good IMO. But, it does seem to have taken inspiration from the SLR.

The hood for instance looks like a broader version of the F1 inspired SLR. It's got the similar side heat exhaust. And the light somehow feels like the SLR. IMO

Hey Psycho. Can you post a profile shot also? Especially when you've extended your stay there.

Very good looking car, but too many slats throughout the design. The front and the rear end look fantastic. And those holes on the hood will never make it into production, that is if the car does, Please Peugeot! Seems like this is the Peugeot family face that is going to be seen on all their models. And one more thing, please lose those alloys! They look aftermarket. When they design a GT, the least i would expect is them to design some nice wheels too. But if they make it, i wouldn't mind picking one up if i was looking for a GT.

The holes in the hood are for the air intakes for the massive 6.0 litre V12 engine (368 kW or 500 bhp), and baby is the wrap around windshiled a work of art.... Its hard to believe that it's a French Supercar??? The link I had provided below the Photograph leads to the article and a whole set of snaps for the car. Happy reading...

If those are the air intake then why they're covered with glass or plastic?

Oh shoot, they are holes for air intake. On first look it seems like another quirky French design touch.

"Set into the bonnet, a glazed panel reveals twelve intake trumpets reminiscent of a fairground organ." This is a small exerpt from the article I had linked to.

The only thing I can say is that it looks like it has a ram air into that clear plastic bubble for the intakes.

Its basically a glass panel in the bonnet so fans can get a glimpse of the intake trumpets.

Another review link.

Ok this is a wierd guess. What i think it is, is that, it's a glass vent that transfers hot air from the engine into the cabin.

Looks like that glas vent is directly connected to the air vent in the cabin.

BTW the two factors that remind me of the SLR are.

Shape of the car, long hood n stuff

Tha moddle part of the hood which again looks somewhat like the nose of a F1 car, which happens to be the SLR's trademark.
